January 2023 | INDX Furniture Cements Order-Writing Status
Cementing its order-writing reputation, INDX Furniture returned to its West Midlands event venue, Cranmore Park, on 20 -23 January and retailers turned out in their droves to see the latest product ranges from an expertly edited exhibitor selection.
As part of the INDX group of trade shows, which celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year, INDX Furniture is organised by Associated Independent Stores (AIS), the UK’s leading buying and services group for Fashion, Home, and Leisure and the first day of the show was reserved exclusively for its Members, such as Simon Mitchell from Jarrold & Sons:
“We find that the INDX shows are excellent for our business because they offer both exclusivity and good choice. The actual experience of being here is enjoyable because it's a good crowd of people from across the industry. We also believe that it is better than the NEC Furniture show and long may it continue - we're very pleased to be here!”
Alongside an impressive roster of returning brands, such as Actona, At the Helm, Classic Furniture, Corium, Digio by Sofitalia, G Plan, Hill & Hunter, Himolla, Hydeline, HTL, Parker Knoll, Primavera, TCH, Unique and Wood Bros, the show also welcomed new exhibitors Bell & Stocchero, Calia Italia, Celtic Spas, Connubia, Encore, Kesterport, Mattsons, and Siren.
Among the suppliers making their debut, Colin Boyce from Mattsons Beds was delighted to be in attendance and thrilled with the quality of visitor footfall:
“I’ve never enjoyed a show as much as I have this one. We’ve had every major retailer looking at our beds and everyone has loved them. We’ve taken orders beyond my expectation, and it’s just been really nice to meet everyone involved. If you have a top end, very desirable product, the AIS/INDX Furniture show is the place to be”.
Meanwhile, Andrew Kerr, from Siren Furniture also had a successful show, meeting new and existing customers:
“We came to INDX Furniture to re-establish Siren in the minds of the customer. We brought a selection of ranges to target different segments of the market and we’ve been able to see existing customers and re-engage with lapsed customers, as well as opening dialogue with many new ones too! The show has given us a lot of new areas to develop into as well as different parts of the country - so we’ve been really, really pleased”.
Whilst INDX Furniture will return from 20*- 22 June 2023 (*AIS Member Day), the organising team have their sights firmly set on the immediate future and delivering their next calendar show; INDX Beds & Bedroom on 25*- 26 April 2023 (*AIS Member Day).
